And even though it sounds preposterous to rational thinkers, in reality their experiences are quite peculiarly true. Let me shed light on this matter on today's episode of Nature, Naskar & Neurons. And I am Abhijit Naskar. Heaven is real - naaaaah, I'm just messing with ya. Let me tell you five facts about heaven. Number 1 The idea of an afterlife was created by the imagination of our ancient ancestors who lived in tribes and had way little intellectual capacity. And further this idea fueled in people's actual encounter with heaven. Number 2 There are people who have actually gone to haven and come back.

This chemical is called DMT, or DimethylTryptamine. Number 4 When your brain releases substantial amounts of DMT in times of distress such as a near death event, your mind goes into an altered state - a state of profound hallucinations where your deepest desires or darkest fears manifest as reality. And this reality seems so damn real that even a neurosurgeon can become the dumbest man on earth and start to hail it as a real experience in heaven where he apparently flies around on the back of a butterfly. Really! Number 5 Consciousness is the product of electrochemical signalling in the neurons of your brain. So when the brain stops functioning fully, your consciousness, or to a broader aspect your mind ceases to exist with its unique individualistic qualities. This means that you die with the death of your brain. Hard as it may sound to some, there is no heaven, or hell, or an ever-enchanting r
